Learn More About Our Centre

Discover a clean, warm and welcoming family environment at Guardian Early Learning Centre – Mentone. The outdoor space at our child care centre is separated into three distinct spaces where babies can safely crawl and explore, toddlers can experiment with their emerging independence, and older children can run, jump and tumble to their hearts content.

The children love learning about environmental sustainability, and are taught how to plant in the garden and tend to our worm farms. We also grow and pick our own vegetables, which are turned into nutritious meals by our talented and popular chef.

The children look forward to guest visits from the local librarian, dentist and emergency services, but they particularly love special wildlife sessions where they can learn all about marine animals, farm animals and creepy crawlies! Families are always welcome to share their talents or professions with the children too.

As a new family at our early learning centre, tours of our premises and phone updates during those early days will ensure you have peace of mind that your child is in safe, loving and capable hands.

From orientation through to their last day with us, you can be assured of clear and open communication as we become trusted partners in your child’s learning journey.

We love hearing children tell their families all about their favourite experiences, the educators that helped them, and the interesting things they learned that day. Seeing them recount their day with energy, pride and enthusiasm is what we aim to achieve.

“Thanks again for the settling in sessions this week. I’m so incredibly happy with our decision to come to you, the centre feels so much like what we are at home – relaxed and calm, friendly and caring.”
